10th anniversary no. 1

02.02.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Roger first becoming No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings on 2 February 2004. The abiding memory is of Roger dropping to his knees and raising his arms in celebration. It was 9:30 p.m. in Melbourne, on 30 January 2004, and he had just beaten his rival for No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, Juan Carlos Ferrero, in the Australian Open semi-finals. The victory proved to be enough for Roger to become the world’s premier player for the first time. Roger confessed, “I wanted to enjoy this moment. You only get to be No. 1 once.”

Don't be sad, there are better times to come for Rogi and us. By the way, I'm happy to see there is a huge gap between Rogi and Gasquet.

So don't worry. Everything will be just fine :-)

Thanks FF. So happy that Andy Murray is slipping in the rankings. I do doubt he will ever win a Grand Slam again.

Ah I see Fans4Roger Club is different and more expensive - 90CHF! - Phew! With that amount of money I would expect to receive a bottle of champagne every time Roger wins! lol
